Yea Though I Walk Through The Valley
The Linen God by Jim O’Shea is a thrilling contemporary Christian suspense. It had me gripped from the start and I read it in just one sitting.
Reminiscent of the movie of Dan Brown’s Angels And Demons, the reader enters the shady world of the Vatican where forces of evil battle with the good. “The enemy mimics the things of God… to deceive and destroy.” Life is a spiritual battle. We do not always understand it but we combat evil with prayer and standing on the Word of God.
“The most powerful force in the universe is faith.” We need to stand on our faith at all times. “Faith will overcome your fear.” We need never fear, knowing that God has defeated the enemy.
Sometimes we do feel abandoned by God. “God, where are You?… but the heavens remained silent.” Silence is not absence. We need to lean closer to God and hear His whisper.
Life may seem out of control. “What has happened to you does not define you.” It is our response to situations that will show what we are made of – and Whose we are.
The Linen God has a complex, well thought out plotline, grounded in Biblical teachings. It shows how forces of evil can and do, manipulate the truth.
The story consumed me. I think it would make a marvellous blockbuster movie. I picture Antonio Banderas in the role of Manny.
A fabulous tale that does not seem beyond the realms of possibility.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

The Shroud of Turin is the most studied and controversial religious relic in human history.

And what if it fell into the wrong hands? Manny Lusum is convinced the Shroud is the genuine article and obsessed with proving it scientifically. Grace Barden is not only Manny’s best friend, but also secretly in love with the physics student and soon-to
